We're CGS and we build futures.


We build them with all sorts of people

at all ages and stages of their careers,

some working, some not working,

some forced not to work.


We meet first a bundle of emotions

which becomes in conversation

a real and uniquely talented person

with whom we work to build futures

in all shapes and sizes.


The common factor is that each future

is the right one for the client

because s/he's the one making

the choices which build them.


    CGS exists to address two questions: How should I think about the rest of my career? and What should I do about it?  Click here to see how we set about finding the answers.


  • CGS offers a completely personal, tailored, open-ended outplacement to senior executives and professionals; also mentoring services to CEOs and senior leaders. 

  • Our thanks to all our clients who are soldiering on through the pandemic, proving that there really is still a market out there.  We have recently contributed a chapter entitled Another Career to a book on retirement for lawyers and other professionals, an excellent compendium of advice across the board: law, accounting, tax and psycholgy as well as our piece about building futures.  No less than 72 people from as far afield as San Diego came to our virtual launch Zoominar on 18th May.


In these drear and dismal days of Covid-19, it's good to know that the spirit of British eccentricity lives on, in particular on the Letters page of The Times.  Here's a recent such gem:

"Sir, like your correspondent yesterday, I am restricting myself [during lockdown] to one drink per day.  Today I have reached the 20th of July 2033."
